Torino V Empoli Preview

It will be interesting to see how Torino will react to their first defeat of the season when they face Empoli on Saturday afternoon.

The defeat against Gubbio was obviously disappointing, but Torino still remain top of the league, and must get back to winning ways as soon as possible in order to stay there. Migjen Basha and Giulio Ebagua should return to the starting eleven after disappointing performances by their replacements - Giuseppe Vives and Alessandro Sgrigna.

Toro will be eager to ease the nerves with an early goal on Saturday, as in their five previous home games they have only scored one goal in the first half - and that was in the 40th minute.

Empoli have had a disappointing start to the season and despite being many pundits tip for a place in the the playoffs, they find themselves at the other end of the table, in 20th position. However, in spite of their lowly league position, in Francesco Tavano, Empoli have one of the in form strikers in the division - having scored seven goals already this campaign.
